43 Tipperary Women’s Groups receive funding in new announcement

Department of Rural and Community Development
Tipperary has received funding for 43 women’s facilities across the county. These include Camogie and GAA Clubs, Women’s Sheds, Girl Guides, ICA Groups and various other organisations. The funding is made up of a small grant that has also been provided to similar organisations countrywide and will assist these groups with their capital costs. These grants were announced by Minister for Rural and Community Development Heather Humphreys and this funding comes as part of The Local Enhancement Programme 2024 which provided €6 million to groups nationwide, allocating €1 million to women’s groups across the country. 

“Information garnered from distributing these supports will help the Department to get a better idea of the spread of Women’s Sheds, Groups and Networks across the country. This will inform the Department on how to best support these groups in the future.”

Speaking on the announcement of the funding Minister Humphreys said:  

“I am delighted to announce the successful projects today for Women’s Sheds, Groups and Networks throughout the country. These groups are working tirelessly within communities to provide both young and old with an outlet to socialise, upskill, relax and so much more. I am constantly amazed by the work, community spirit and ethos of the many, many groups that give so much of their time to enhance and improve their communities. I want you to know that I see what you do, and I hope that through these grants my Department can help.”

“The grants today may be small in value but to the successful groups they are invaluable – they can open up so many possibilities for so many people. I will continue to engage with the communities of Ireland to see how my Department can continue to support you going forward. I would encourage all groups out there to check out and see if you too can benefit from some of my Department’s programmes.”
